Fayetteville, GA (October 12, 2012) – Regina Daigre, Editor-in-Chief of High Hopes Digital Magazine (www.detsuccess.com/highhopesmagazine) at Daigre Educational Teams (DET) promotes Emmanuel Jal "war child" of Sudan. Jal, known for "We Want Peace" song (www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1ZEJWVSiEI), will perform at Fayette County's first Any1Can WE WANT PEACE Benefit Concert and Art Show on Tuesday, October 16, 2012 at the Southern Ground Amphitheater in Fayetteville, GA.
The festival-style event will raise money to benefit schools in South Sudan. Doors open at 6:00 p.m., one hour before the music begins. The event is being coordinated by educator Sonya Cunningham and members of Fayette County High School's STAND program, the nationwide student-led division of United to End Genocide and Patricia Shafer, chief catalyst of non-profit Mothering Across Continents. Tickets for lawn, general admission and VIP seats are available online (http://fchsstand.wix.com/emmanueljalconcert ).
During the October 16 concert, Mr. Jal will perform "We Want Peace" and singles from his latest album with Fayette County High School students and other local schools. In this musical collaboration, students will be recognized as "Voices of Change." "The voices of youth are very important to achieving a peaceful world," said Mr. Jal. "The Atlanta area is a region known for the arts. I'm glad to be part of such a 'peace happening' and have talented young people in Fayette County jam with me for peace."
An estimated 30,000 southern Sudanese "Lost Boys" grew up in refugee camps after fleeing, as children, when their villages came under attack from the north during civil war in Sudan. In 2001, approximately 3,800 Lost Boys were specially invited to come to the U.S. and become citizens. Their arduous 1,000 mile journey was profiled in the award-winning documentary God Grew Tired of Us. Jal's own journey is the subject of the award-winning book and film War Child.
Jal is the recipient of the 2011 Common Ground Award for his peace building work. Performances include Nelson Mandela's ninetieth birthday celebration and a special event at the United Nations with Beyoncé. His widely acclaimed pro-peace, hip-hop anthem "We Want Peace" is a statement against genocide and call for world peace. The video features Alicia Keys and Peter Gabriel, George Clooney and President Jimmy Carter. Jal's latest album "See Me Mama" was released in the U.S. in September 2012.
